Common pool problems

Owning a pool is fantastic, especially in the heat of summer. However, pools require proper care to ensure that they stay clean and operate correctly. While it can be easy to forget or overlook what you need to do to maintain your pool water, falling behind on this upkeep often leads to some common pool problems.

Let's take a look at some of these problems and you'll see how WaterGuru SENSE can help keep your pool in the best shape possible!

ALGAE AWAY!

When your pool has low chlorine levels, improper pH levels, dirty filters or poor circulation, it might be the ideal place for algae growth. You should be on the lookout for a few different kinds of algae in your pool that range in resistance and strength, potentially posing problems to your swimming habits.

CLOUDINESS AIN’T HAPPINESS

If your water looks weird, something probably is off. Cloudy water can be caused by early stages of green algae growth, chemicals that are out of balance, poor filtration or external contaminants like sunscreen. It's crucial to test your pool water to narrow down the cause and then treat your pool appropriately to ensure that the water is safe and clean.

SAYONARA STAINING & SCALING

Staining and scaling may occur whether your pool liner is concrete, plaster or vinyl. Scaling is often caused by imbalanced water, having high total hardness, high pH or high total alkalinity. Staining can be caused by the presence of excess minerals that break down. This can be due to the water source you used to fill your pool, from corrosion of copper or the use of copper-based algaecides.

SERENE WITH CHLORINE

When pool contaminant levels get too high, your usual dose of chlorine doesn't get the job done. Chlorine demand occurs when organic contaminants or debris build up and overpower your chlorine content. When your pool uses up all of the chlorine due to this issue, there's little left over to deal with other pollutants.
